This is a nice antique transit in its' original box by Buff & Buff Mfg. It was distributed by B.
It has a decal on the top that reads U. Property, Volunteer Ordnance Works, Serial #0-6782. 1674317 on it, and it is numbered 26516.
The base wood mount has the same serial number. The original carrying strap is missing, as well as the hook eye on the bottom front latch hook. The box stands 17" tall, and is 9" by 11. The sun shield is included, but shows some tarnishing, as it is a painted piece. This is complete, all original, all the knobs and adjustments work, all the bubble levels are perfect, clear to look through, compass works as it should.
All three interior labels/placards are complete and intact. It has been stored for decades. Please ask questions if needed.
Any white spots are camera flash. I pack very well, and do not charge anything extra as "add-ons". I do not end auctions early. I treat my customers as I would expect to be treated.
